Announcing Orca v 2.0:
Application Configuration Automation with New Linux Support and New Job Summary Views for Reporting and Compliance
Orca now supports Linux.
With its version 2.0, Orca introduces Linux support for Apache, MySQL and System Services with even more coverage to be announced. Now organizations with mixed Windows and Linux environments can centrally and securely automate their application and middleware configuration management and workflows.
Orca meets a previously unmet need.
Customers who need continuous delivery and increased software velocity have many well-known application release automation options available to them. Similarly customers who require server and OS-layer configuration management have several reliable, purpose-built commercial alternatives.
But the ongoing configuration management at the middleware and application layers has been a DevOps area that has stubbornly resisted drag and drop workflow automation, until now…until Orca.
|Now, Orca users 1) automatically detect drift, 2) automatically correct drift and 3) bulk-deploy app and middleware configuration changes across hundreds or even thousands of servers in both Windows and Linux environments.|
New Job Summary Views for simplified reporting and compliance. New levels of transparency.
Orca 2.0 users can now see manager level summaries which provide a single pane of glass view for audits and compliance reporting, a powerful new level of transparency and time-savings.
While Orca has always reported the full detailed history of a job including the outcome, configurations affected on each node, timing, approvals and workflows, version 2.0 also logs whether a job had been validated prior to execution. These new management views and enhanced job logs reflect Orca’s commitment to taking the pain out of audits, compliance and reporting.
Team Orca has created powerful DevOps tools before
Team Orca founders are veterans at improving and automating once-painful IT processes. They started Build Forge (now part of IBM) to accelerate software delivery through build process automation. Later they started VaraLogix (now part of BMC) to take the risk and uncertainty out of web application deployment. Now Team Orca is excited to improve life for IT teams by streamlining time consuming, money wasting, overly complex configuration processes that many have just taken for granted for too long.
